Should Interview Feedback be given to Candidate ?

Dear HR Professionals,

I would like to invite your view for interview result. When the interviewee is not qualifying for a particular position is it not the interviewer responsibility to give proper feedback. I mean why he / she has been rejected.

I strongly believe that proper result should be given to the person whom u r not hiring so that he / she can improve in that particular area. But yes, it should not be in negative manner.

Please let me know your view.

Thanks

Sameer

yes, i would also always recommend proper feedback should be given to the interviewee whom u r not hiring so that he / she can improve in that particular area. Though it costs few extra seconds. It should be in a positive manner. It will brighten out the weak areas of candidate for their knowledge grooming as well as enhance the confidence and personality of interviewee. It will reduce the inferriority complex too after a rejection.

now, if we will see from company's point of view, a good image of company develops into candidate's mind which might / will spread word to mouth, and it worth to the extra time spent by the co. Even candidates might filter the wrong / unmatched interviewee if coming from reference, which might save company's valuable time.


Thanks

Hi, I too agree that even rejection feedback should be shared with the candidate in the positive manner. Candidate could also help in sourcing of profiles by providing references. It also provide base to the candidate to improve upon & on the other side help organization to build positive reputation. Regards, Savita

yes, i also believe that a proper feedback should be given to the interviewee whom u r not hiring. But it should be in positive way. Though it takes few extra seconds to the company but its after effects are good. It brightens up the lacking areas of candidates. so that he / she can improve in that particular area. It also helps in grooming of knowledge of interviewee and their personality. It also reduces down the inferiority complex of candidate after a rejection.

Now if we see from company's point of view, the positive feedback creates a good image of the company, and that will / might spread word to mouth among candidates and it worth to the co. Even candidates might filter the unmatched candidates if coming through reference and it might save the company's valuable time as a reward.

Hi, Sameer.

 

I strongly agree that candidate whether he/she passes the interview or not should be given feedback at the end of the interview.

For candidates who passed, they will have an idea on their strong points that they can continuously improve.

For candidates who did not pass, they will have a knowledge on the things that they need to work on and to improve on.

As a Recruiter, it is somehow your (moral & social) responsibility to be part of the process on developing people and exploring people's potentials.

Feedback should be given in a positive or optimistic manner and definitely not in a detrimental way.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Jen
